1st 370,2nd 500..Long Road to go..But nothing can stop me... [#permalink] New post 12 Aug 2013, 11:27
Hello Folks,

I took my GMAT today for the second time and scored a miserable 500 :( .. This was my second attempt and I have really studied hard this time. My score breakup is (Q42, V18). I studied for almost 6 months and literally worked my a** off. I am very sure that i messed up in RC and CR. I did well on Quants but I know my range is 47-48.I am ready to start again and I am very determined now.

Guys I need guidance, I know my week areas in Quants, but I am not quite sure how to work with Verbal. Any input will be appreciated?

Thanks,

Hello Sarahrs,

My First score (370) was in 2009 and I barely studied that time, but this time I studied for like 6 months straight, For quants I studied from Manhattan Guides but left the topics such as Coordinate, Probability and P&C and in the real exam I got about 6-8 questions from these topics, which I totally guessed. So quants this is where I have to improve mostly and couple of more topics.

For verbal, I enrolled with E-gmat (Recording only) the course really helped me improve my SC from almost Zero to 80%+, I struggled with CR and SC very badly. CR was still average (50%+ accuracy), but I took really heavy beating in RC, I am not quite sure how to work on these areas.

Any guidance will be appreciated?

Thanks
